Our beautiful baby daughter Anabelle was born sleeping June 2010.
Blessed with the screaming arrivals of our gorgeous rainbow sons,
Alexander October 2011, Zachary November 2013 and Lucas July 2016.

After Anabelle - Raising Rainbows
Heartbreak. Joy. Death. Life. But most of all Love.

A Different Child

A different child,
people notice, 
there's a special glow around you.
surrounded by love, 
never doubting you are wanted;
only look at the pride and joy
in your mother and father's eyes.

and if sometimes,
between the smiles,
theres a trace of tears,
one day
you'll understand.
You'll understand
there was once another child.
A different child
who was in their hopes and dreams.
That child will never outgrow the baby clothes
That child will never keep them up at night. 

Infact, that child will never be any trouble at all.
except sometimes, in a silent moment, 
when mother and father miss so much 
that different child.
may hope and love wrap you warmly
and may you learn the lesson forever
how infinitely precious
how infinitely fragile
is this life on earth.

One day, as a young man or woman
you may see another mother's tears,
another father's silent grief.
then you, and you alone 
will understand
and offer the greatest comfort.

when all hope seems lost,
you will tell them 
with great compassion,
"I know how you feel. I'm only here because my mother tried again."
